The Nielsen company said Wednesday it was similar to President Barack Obama's 2014 presidential address on fighting the Islamic state, which was seen by 34 million people.</p>

    Actress and activist Alyssa Milano took to Twitter on Sunday to assist with a crowd-funding effort on behalf of an illegal immigrant — just ten days after she scolded Americans in favor of crowd-funding a border wall for “not taking care of our veterans.” Milano devoted two tweets to Eduardo Samaniego, who is currently being held in an ICE detention center, one of which contained a link to a GoFundMe page raising money for Samaniego’s legal defense. Alyssa Milano ✔ @Alyssa_Milano Eduardo is in Irwin Detention Facility which has numerous human rights abuse cases against it. The Southern Poverty Law...

    The mother of slain University of Iowa student Mollie Tibbetts opened up her home to the teenage son of Mexican immigrants who worked with the man suspected of killing her daughter and left the small town because they feared it was unsafe. Laura Calderwood took in Ulises Felix, 17, after his parents left Brooklyn, Iowa, according to the Washington Post. The man accused of killing 20-year-old Tibbetts, Cristhian Bahena Rivera, 24, worked with Felixs parents at a dairy farm in the small town. Felix said his mother cooked for Rivera and his cousin dated the suspect. Rivera and Felixs cousin,...

    The mother of Mollie Tibbetts, a 20-year-old Iowa college student who was allegedly murdered earlier this year by an immigrant residing the U.S. illegally, adopted the child of Mexican immigrants who fled town after the man accused of killing her daughter was arrested. Laura Calderwood told The Washington Post in an interview published Friday that she had taken in Ulises Felix, 17, after his parents fled town following Cristhian Bahena Rivera's arrest...

  • Mexico goes along with Trumps caravan plan

    When this idea was first proposed it was deemed to be a non-starter right out of the gate. The President wanted migrants presenting themselves at the US border with Mexico to wait in that nation while their applications for entry were processed since detention facilities to hold them on our side of the border were strained well beyond capacity. The previous Mexican administration wanted nothing to do with it and the liberal cohort on our side of the border described it as inhumane.Now, with AMLO in office, we’re seeing yet another shift in policy. The Mexican government seems to be...

    As the migrant caravan continues to dominate headlines, many of us are focusing on protecting the rights of those who are fleeing violence in their homelands. I recently traveled to Tijuana where I volunteered at a legal information table under a tent outside of Benito Juarez sports complex, a temporary shelter for roughly 6,000 Central Americans. What I saw was appalling, and a direct result of the fabricated crisis created by this administration. One fact about the shelter became immediately clear. The shelter did not, in fact, provide shelter. It is an uncovered sports arena, which provided no refuge from...

    Why San Diego? It could have been Texas Notice the difference? The path to McAllen is approximately 1,300 miles long; whereas the path to San Diego is approximately 2,700 miles long. So the caravan travelled more than twice as far as it needed to. Why in the world would they do that? They didnt have their own vehicles, and they werent carrying enough food or resources to justify the longer journey. There are two reasons. The first reason can be summed up in two words: Ninth Circuit. The caravan members have been advised by liberal immigration attorneys all along. Not...

    A 7-year-old girl from Guatemala died of dehydration and shock after she was taken into Border Patrol custody last week for crossing from Mexico into the United States illegally with her father and a large group of migrants along a remote span of New Mexico desert, U.S. Customs and Border Protection said Thursday. The childs death is likely to intensify scrutiny of detention conditions at Border Patrol stations and CBP facilities that are increasingly overwhelmed by large numbers of families seeking asylum in the United States. According to CBP records, the girl and her father were taken into custody about...

    They make beds in inns across the country. They pick oranges in Florida, strawberries in California and vegetables in Ohio. And they have built new subdivisions in Phoenix, Atlanta and Charlotte. For years, policymakers have talked about shutting off the influx of undocumented workers. But the economy has grown to rely on them. Ending illegal immigration, say many of those who have studied the issue, could mean that American workers would lose their jobs, companies would close and the economy would contract.

    Hispanic Democrats drew a red line Wednesday in budget negotiations, saying they cannot support any year-end spending bill unless it reduces the governments ability to detain illegal immigrants ahead of deportation. The Democrats also said they want to eliminate all money for the border wall not the $5 billion President Trump is seeking, nor even the $1.6 billion that Senate Democrats have said theyre willing to spend. We urge the Committee to provide zero funding for the border wall, the chair and vice chair of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus said in a letter to GOP leaders. Five billion dollars...

    Mexico has pledged to improve its safety close to the US border immediately after 39 migrants were arrested out of hundreds of Central Us residents who violently tried to enter the US following a tranquil protest to charm for faster processing of asylum requests. US brokers fired tier fuel into the Tijuana river aqueduct to consider and end some of the migrants building the push. Roughly 500 migrants will straight away be deported soon after the attempted border crossing, in accordance to Mexicos inside ministry, even though the additional than three-dozen arrested migrants ended up detained for disturbing the peace...

    One of NewsBusters' classification categories is "Covert Liberal Activists," and my antennae immediately went up when Lauren Leader was introduced on today's Morning Joe as "co-founder and CEO of All In Together, "a non-partisan, women's civic and political organization." It didn't take much digging to determine that "non-partisan" Leader and her All In Together sidekicks are liberals. The topic of the opening segment was the chaotic border-crossing attempts yesterday, and President Trump's authorization to use force, lethal if necessary, to prevent illegal entry. Of all the panelists, including steadfast liberals like Mike Barnicle and John Heilemann, "non-partisan" Leader was the...

    Washington (AFP) The Trump administration has reached a deal with Mexicos incoming government under which asylum seekers will wait in Mexico while their claims are assessed by US courts, The Washington Post reported Saturday. The deal, which would overhaul US border policy, comes with President Donald Trump outraged over the presence of thousands of Central American migrants who marched to the Mexican side of the border hoping to enter the US for a better life free from the poverty and gang violence in their homelands. For now, we have agreed to this policy of Remain in Mexico, the Post...

    President Trump's chief of staff John Kelly signed a memo late Tuesday allowing troops stationed at the border to act in a law enforcement capacity and use lethal force, if necessary, according to Tara Copp of Military Times. The new Cabinet order was signed by White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, not President Donald Trump. It allows Department of Defense military personnel to perform those military protective activities that the Secretary of Defense determines are reasonably necessary to protect border agents, including a show or use of force (including lethal force, where necessary), crowd control, temporary detention. and cursory...

    An illegal alien previously detained by a sanctuary city in New Jersey has been accused of killing three individuals in Missouri, but federal authorities argue that these crimes could have been prevented if better cooperation existed between immigration officials and local enforcement.According to Fox News, "Luis Rodrigo Perez, 23, a native of Mexico, is charged with fatally shooting two men and wounding two others on Nov. 1 and fatally shooting a woman the next day."Perez had previously been detained by Middlesex County, NJ authorities on domestic violence charges. Immigration and Customs Enforcement placed a detainer on the illegal alien, which...

    A federal appeals court on Thursday rejected the Trump administrations bid to move ahead with its planned cancellation of a program that has provided protections and benefits to undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. when they were children. The ruling, by a three-judge panel of the San Francisco-based Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, said the administration voiced inadequate and flawed reasons for its decision in September 2017 to terminate an Obama-era program called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA.
